Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

The situation around the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic continues to change rapidly.

The latest advice, which is available on the Public Health England website, includes stopping non-essential contact with others, staying at home if you or a member of your household are unwell, avoiding non-essential travel and working from home if you can.

Guidance on social distancing for everyone in the UK has been provided on GOV.UK. Please look at this advice, which includes important information on social distancing and on those people who may be at higher risk.



Staying at home

Staying at Home Guidance published by Public Health England explains when to self-isolate, how to effectively manage self-isolation in different living environments, and how to support the well-being of anyone self-isolating and those around them. Key messages are:



Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital

You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you're staying at home, but you should contact your university and update your status on our website so we can track how many students across the UK have contracted the virus.

If your symptoms worsen during isolation or are no better after seven days, contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.
